The Australian government should bring the guilty to justice and give the Afghan people an official apology and solemn promise that they will never repeat such crimes. They said that the Chinese government should be ashamed. It is Australian soldiers who have committed such cruel crimes. Shouldn’t the Australian government be ashamed? Shouldn’t they be ashamed when their soldiers kill innocent Afghan civilians?
She defends Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian’s tweet that infuriated Scott Morrison today. Morrison said the Chinese Communist Party should be appalled by the fake tweet and Twitter should shut it down.
Some Australian soldiers have committed serious crimes in Afghanistan. This was reported by the Australian media and confirmed by a report from the Australian Ministry of Defense. The chief of defense, General Campbell, spoke on the report at a special meeting. The details are appalling and shocking, including men and boys all of whom were shot with slit throats and blindfolded.
There are stories of two 14 year old boys whose throats were cut and their bodies thrown into a recruit and recruits were ordered to kill prisoners in a practice known as bleeding. These horrific crimes have been condemned by the international community.
The Australian site is so responsive to my colleague’s Twitter. Does this mean that they consider the cold-blooded murder of innocent Afghan civilians to be justified, while the condemnation of such crimes by other people is not justified? Afghan life is important.

Jacinda Ardern was asked why New Zealand, which has taken a stand against China’s wishes on issues like Hong Kong, did not have the same difficulties with its relations as Australia:
When asked why New Zealand is not treated similarly in China, Ms. Ardern suggested that consistency and predictability were key.
« We are signaling that we have these concerns and, in a very predictable way, we will be using different forums as to whether these are ministerial statements, whether they are bilateral, » she said.
« New Zealand is pretty predictable in these areas and that is the approach we are taking with any country where we have concerns. ”

Elaine Pearson, director of Human Rights Watch Australia, told Guardian Australia the tweet was « breathtaking, incredibly hypocritical ». .
Obviously, war crimes are a very serious matter, but the Australian government has taken steps to make this public and hold the perpetrators accountable.
Meanwhile, the Chinese government has committed widespread, systematic human rights abuses, repeatedly alleged by UN experts, from the demolition of democracy in Hong Kong to the arbitrary detention of a million of its citizens in Xinjiang. What steps is the Chinese government taking?
Pearson said that if China is to « play the game of publicly raising human rights concerns, » it must accept that foreign governments « are right to express their own concerns about China ». .
So much for China’s position not to interfere in other countries’ affairs. China has proven that it is capable of declaring abuses in other countries and must therefore accept criticism of its deplorable human rights violations in China, ”she said.
The editor-in-chief of the Global Times – one of the most hawkish Chinese state media – has responded to Scott Morrison’s request to delete Foreign Secretary Zhao Liljian’s tweet.

AAP has a story about New Zealand media trying to break away from their racist reporting in the past.
New Zealand media company Stuff has made a groundbreaking apology to the country’s Māori for the history of racist reporting.
The organization that includes New Zealand’s largest news website and daily newspapers in Wellington and Christchurch hired 20 journalists to investigate their own journalism.
After a few months, Stuff discovered that its outlets were « racist, contributed to stigma, marginalization and stereotypes against Māori ». .
There is a banner headline on the front page of newspapers and on the website: « No matou te he » or « We’re sorry ». .
« Our monocultural lens means that we have not always portrayed Tangata Whenua (rural residents) fairly, » the editorial team said.

Stuff’s investigation began in June following a management buyout from previous Australian owners Nine, who inherited the Kiwi company when it merged with Fairfax Media in 2018.
Project Manager Carmen Parahi said the company « wanted and needed to be pushed harder to become better and more representative of all people in New Zealand ». .

Editor-in-Chief Mark Stevens noted the historical nature of some of the reports, including references to an « inferior breed » in the 19th century. century.
“Our language has often divided New Zealand into two parts – Kiwis and Māori. Two separate groups, us and them, ”said Stevens.
« Join the debate on the Foreshore and Seabed Act . . . « The debate over the usual Māori rights on the coast and on the seabed is making New Zealanders nervous. « . ”
Managing Director Sinead Boucher said it was imperative that the company count on its history to be « a trusted partner to Tangata Whenua (people of the land) for generations to come ». .
